“Part of a great intermediate loop (Stovetop) that provides access to rest of the Piedmont system.”

Most of the Lower Burner of Stovetop is a part of the Duluth Traverse, but this section is not. Consequently, you'll notice the character of this short section is slightly different from the typical Duluth Traverse construction.
This section is almost entirely flat and relatively straight, but it doesn't lack scenery or 'feel'. It skirts closely past looming boulders along a subtle ridge. At the south end of this segment is a massive boulder with a ladder-ramp up one side and a very steep descent on the other!
